Loshiro received surgery to treat club foot.

After a successful operation, this little guy will eventually be able to stand and walk properly. He is no longer at risk of learning to walk on the lateral area of his foot, and can enjoy an active childhood and full life.

Meet Loshiro! He is a seven-month-old boy from Tanzania who was born with a club foot. Loshiro is the youngest of four children and lives with his parents and sisters on their small farm.

Loshiro’s parents grow maize and vegetables to provide for the family. They cannot afford the procedure needed to correct Loshiro’s condition. But if left untreated, Loshiro will learn to walk improperly, which will lead to pain and difficulty for the rest of his life.

For $715, Loshiro will receive surgery to correct his condition, giving him the opportunity to learn to walk normally and live an active life!
